Brent oil traded at $ 66.62 a barrel, down by 1.33% from yesterday’s closing,
while West Texas Intermediate oil crude found buyers at a rate of $ 63.23 a barrel.

 

Lower prices were driven by fears after increasing US inventories the world’s largest consumer of oil crude,
last week. This led to boosting fears of declining demand in the country.

 

According to estimates by American Petroleum Institute,
US commercial crude oil inventories rose by 12.8 million barrels last week compared to the previous one.

The market expected a decline in inventories by about 833,000 barrels.

according to estimates of the US Department of Energy.
